Wide variety in population serviced, low wages and opportunities for advancement
Medical professional (Current Employee) – Sports medicine and rehab/WOC – June 18, 2019
Non-competitive wages, offered less benefits than other, similar positions, treated (and told) as if easily replaceable, expected to work varying times and lengths of shifts and split-shifts, inconsistent expectations
Large organization for the area, opportunities to network/ join the club
Expected to receive all healthcare from that organization; insurance only covers that hospital
Manager (Former Employee) – Macomb, IL – April 23, 2019
Expect more of employees than is feasible and does not give them the proper tools, training, resources for people to successfully do their jobs. The work/life balance is horrible, especially for all management levels. They ask you to wear multiple hats and constantly do more with less. The highest level of management is incompetent and dishonest. They place more value on the bottom line than they do in doing the right thing and providing excellent patient care and treating their employees well. Pay is on the lowest end of the scale for the area. There is rarely time to actually do work because of the insane number of meetings you are expected to attend. The meetings usually have no focused agenda and little is ever accomplished so they are typically a total waste of time. They are severely lacking promotion opportunities for employees and leadership training.
Family Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) – Independence, MO – March 20, 2019
I have enjoyed my career here at MDH. I have learned a lot from the other providers and staff. They are friendly and offer opportunities for staff to work out a balance between work and home. Family oriented.
Part Time (Current Employee) – Macomb, IL – January 15, 2019
Poorly managed, very little knowledge about important guidelines for healthcare. Culture is bad, very immature and needs to change. Management needs to do a 180 and figure out reality of what is happening to their small town hospital.
RN (Former Employee) – Macomb, IL – December 3, 2018
Patient safety was my biggest concern. Staffing was not appropriate for the acuity of the patients. Missed many lunch breaks and made to “feel guilty” if I took a lunch or if I did not want to come in on my day off.
Intern Student (Former Employee) – Macomb, IL – November 13, 2018
I observed for four months in the rehabilitation department and was quite impressed with the culture among staff. Peers hold one another to high standards and expect nothing, but the best from one another.
Director of Sterile Processing (Former Employee) – Macomb, IL – January 18, 2018
I enjoyed my job very much and took great pride in the job I did. I had a lot of responsibility and worked very hard and did regular research to make sure everything was current and done correctly.
I was trusted that I knew my job and left alone to do that job.
No communication as to the financial issues the hospital.They were apparently having difficulty, so important people had their job one minute and then let go the next. However, as a Director, I was required to give them 90 Days notice if I were to resign!
Housekeeping Aide (Former Employee) – Macomb, IL – November 13, 2017
Was a good job with community feel , people are nice for the most part get a good vibe .work is fairly steady. Management could be better. Job was outsourced to a company that only cares about Numbers.
Certified Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Macomb, IL – June 26, 2015
I have worked for this company for a little over three years now. I have developed many wonderful professional and personal relationships here. The staff are all very willing to work together and make working at MDH a very rewarding experience. I have enjoyed working here and will be sad to leave.
